Introduction

I open this Podcaster with a plea – PLEASE, PLEASE send us an email to confirm you would like to receive news from N2Africa! Due to the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) we need your permission before we can send you our newsletter. All we need is a quick email confirming your agreement to receive the Podcaster from us.  

With thanks to all of the N2Africa staff, and in particular Theresa Ampadu-Boakye and Esther Ronner, we bring you the highlights of the N2Africa Annual Report from 2017 with a link to download the full report if you are interested. We are very proud of our achievements yet of course there is much more to be done. As you read this we have teams starting up an impact survey in all of the N2Africa Core Countries (Ghana, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Uganda) using a ‘mixed-methods approach’. We are also heading for Kigali where we will hold our annual review and planning meeting together with our Advisory Committee. The Legume Alliance in Tanzania and the Scaling-up Improved Legume Technologies project reports exciting results in terms of reaching more than 600,000 smallholder soyabean and common bean producers. We congratulate the latest N2Africa PhD graduate, Dr Esther Ronner, who provides a summary of her findings.
